Happy Jacks RPG Podcast 000

imageThis is Episode 000 of the Happy Jack’s RPG Podcast, in which I introduce myself, describe my RPG experience and ramble on for 20 minutes or so.

If you have any comments, please feel free to post them here.

The blog I mention is at www.stuvenable.com/rpg.

And at this page is my definition of an RPG.

The featured song is “Happy Jacks Undrinkable Ale” by the Poxy Boggards.

This is the book I mentioned:

Errata: After listening to the episode, I double-checked my dates (ie, figured out when I was in Jr. High School) and realized that I said I played the Red Box edition two years before it came out (according to Wikipedia). So, it was in my second or third year of Jr. High, not my first (which was my original recollection). I’m old, and this was a long time ago.

More Errata: Nope. I was right. It was ’78 or ’79. Found this excerpt on Wikipedia:

The original Dungeons & Dragons Basic Set boxed set was first published by TSR, Inc. in 1977,[1] and initially comprised a separate edition of the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, apart from the first edition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game initially published in the same year. Its product designation was TSR 1001. This box set contained a 48-page rules book (with a light blue cover and artwork by David C. Sutherland III), along with a set of polyhedral dice. (For a period in 1979, TSR experienced a dice shortage. Basic sets published during this time frame instead came with two sheets of numbered cutout cardstock chits that functioned in lieu of dice, along with a coupon for ordering dice from TSR.)
